Hey y'all!

Thanks for taking the time to read my bio! I'm thrilled to be back in Texas covering sports in the Panhandle.

I got my start in the news industry at KTBS 3 in Shreveport Louisiana as a general assignments reporter covering crime, city council, animal welfare and Friday night football - when they would let me! It was there I decided I needed to pursue my passion of sports full-time.

I am an unapologetic Longhorn (sorry Red Raiders!), I graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Government in 2016. Originally, I pursued my dream of becoming a college athlete and played soccer at Centenary College of Louisiana for a year and a half, but Austin was calling my name - so I transferred!

I've loved sports for as long as I can remember, growing up on a soccer field and watching the Longhorns on Saturdays in the fall with my dad. I am thrilled to make a career out of my passion.

In my free time, I enjoy working out, spending time with my furr-children Nacho & Luna, and watching college football - Hook 'em Horns!!
